Do you need to book in advance to visit Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore?

by Tanner

Would like to visit this summer and wondered if I need to plan ahead.


Hi Tanner!

The only thing you need to book in advance is your hotels or campground when visiting Sleeping Bear Dunes.

Here is a guide with a map of great campgrounds to book when visiting Sleeping Bear Dunes:
